. >> howard, a question for you, it's historic. why do some candidates like bobby kennedy, jack kennedy, even pat buchanan, come out of a campaign learning about something? you actually learn something. and you have an emotion about it because you have been relatively prifed, most candidates have, and you get exposed to people's lives who are very difficult. why do you think romney has avoided that moment where he says, i get it. >> if he had that moment, he doesn't show it. and the secret videotape made back in may is that romney didn't understand that 47%, but that he had contempt for that 47% thap that 47%. that's the killer. that's what the obama campaign have put on television ads endlessly to affirm. as far as mitt romney learning things or not, it seems to me what he's learned most in this campaign, in order to win the nomination, was how to talk the talk, if not the walk the walk, of a right-wing conservative. which he wasn't beforehand. he's learned things ideologically, at least enough how to win the republican primary, but how it's affected him at all, we don't know. and the fact t
the scenes of those debates. i have some scoop about richard nixon and jack kennedy behind the scenes in those debates. when you take a closer look... ...at the best schools in the world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. if we took the nissan altima and reimagined nearly everything in it? gave it greater horsepower and best in class 38 mpg highway... advanced headlights... and zero gravity seats? yeah, that would be cool. ♪ introducing the completely reimagined nissan altima. it's our most innovative altima ever. nissan. innovation that excites. ♪ >>> let me finish tonight with this. jack kennedy was deadly serious about his four great debates with richard nixon. a week before the first debate he arranged a secret debate with don hewitt, who he knew would be broadcasting the debates. where do i stand, he
you were four years ago? >> senator, i served with jack kennedy. i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> he's very likable. i agree with that. i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough, hillary. >> thank you. >> likable enough. and that was a moment in new hampshire. some game changing moments from debates past and present and could tomorrow night's debate produce anything as memorable. one thing important, ruth, john, we've lived through these debate moments but they're not all game changers. arguably some of those moments like lloyd bentsen and dan quayle didn't change anything because michael dukakis in the final presidential debate showed sort of a remarkable lack of human affect you might say in response to bernie schultz question. >> that didn't help the game from dukakis' point of view. lloyd bentsen's line was great line. >> well rehearsed. >> well delivered, well rehearsed. what do we remember from 2008? no lines. that was not a game changing debate between senator obama and senator mccain. >> not the way it wa
. >> reporter: scripted. so was this. benson to dan quayle. >> i served with jack kennedy. i knew jack kennedy. kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you are no jack kennedy. >> reporter: lesson two, think spelling bee. memorize every possible answer. mistakes will define you forever. don't get the obvious stuff wrong. >> there is no soviet domination of eastern europe. >> reporter: have a plan to handle bizarro curveball questions. >> if kitty dukakis were raped and murdered -- >> reporter: mr. dukakis, governor, answered the death penalty question with policy talk. >> i think there are better and more effective ways to deal with crime. >> reporter: which did not go well for him. which lead to lesson three. appearances count above all. jfk, tan. nixon, just out of the hospital, pale, refusing professional makeup. reagan's people fussed more over his than mondale's did over his. reagan always had a glass of wine just before going on to get those rosy cheeks. lesson four, real debating? so far, after 52 years, not actually required here. so relax. learn your lines. don't sneak in a look at you
kennedy, and you're no jack kennedy. that line was said by the losing side of that campaign. no one from benson world jumped forward to say hey, i wrote that for him. there was none of that. there was no leaking like that. >> you know, look. the best big knockout punches, that wasn't really a knockout punch. dan quayle ended up punching himself in the face. a great line that comes out in the debate are the ones that seem to be unscripted that no one has tell graphed in advance. the polls have been tightening. romney is going to get some elevation just by standing on stage next to barack obama. if he ends up putting a performance that is not zinger filled, that contrasts with our expectations and ends up looking pretty good uch there, there will be a lot of people who say he won the debate. >> mitt romney goes into the debate at a 52% favorability rating with voters. mitt romney at a 42% favorability rating. i don't know how he makes that up in 90 minutes of a debate. >> thank you for joining us. >> thanks lawrence. >> snack cakes. >>> coming up, the 47% effect. new polls show just how mu
was comparing him to jack kennedy. >> senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> but here's the punch line of that. who won the election? bush and quayle. >> reporter: but staying cool under attack? >> there you go again. >> reporter: you get points. being too cool? >> if kitty dukakis were raped and murdered, would you favor an irrevocable death penalty for the killer? >> no, i don't. >> reporter: michael dukakis' numbers dropped after the unfeeling too cool answer. the undecided need reasons to decide. >> substance is more important but demeanor counts. >> people said what, he doesn't think this is important enough to stick around another ten minutes? >> reporter: al gore hurt by his impatient sighing. this year look for this. >> i have never seen as much lying as i have in this campaign. >> that was gary nurenberg reporting. 9 news now and "u.s.a. today" are teaming up for the debate tonight. starting at 9:00 "u.s.a. today" reporters will be fact checking what the candidates say. you can see their analysis on our website wusa9.com. of course a full recap on 9news now at 11:00. >>> right now we have
in the congress as jack kennedy did when he got the presidency. >> senator i served with jack kennedy. i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. [ cheers and applause ] >> that was really uncalled for senator. >> you're the one that was making the comparison, senator. >> oh, smack! >> i love that! >> and there's one more. let's keep them on a high note. there's one more not from a general election debate but from a primary just last year with one of our favorite candidates in the republican primary mr. governor rick perry. >> it's three agencies of government i when i got there that are gone, commerce, education and the -- what's the third one there? oh,! >> commerce, education and the... >> e.p.a.? >> e.p.a. >> seriously? is e.p.a. what you were talking about? >> nos, nos, we were talking about the e.p.a. needs to be rebuilt. >> can you name the third one? >> the third agency of government i would do away with education, the commerce and let's see... i can't the third one i can't sorry. >> i can't. oops.

with jack kennedy. i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> in both of those instances, the blow was fatal. and maybe it didn't show up in the polling right away, but people had this sense that what had happened in that moment was a metaphor for who was the better fighter in the debate. and that could be problematic, couldn't it? >> well, it absolutely could be. i mean there are other moments in debates, too. i'm sure you remember from the primary mitt romney's famous $10,000 bet. >> right. >> so there are many opportunities for practiced, you know, zingers and one-liners, as there are opportunities, you know, to make mistakes. i think the best thing a candidate can do, and i haven't been to a debate president so i'm not advising him but the best thing a can't can do is go in and try to tell a story, a narrative about what they want to do. it's hard to tell a narrative in one-second sound bites but you really want to talk with the american people so they string all of these one minute, and 90 second responses together into what you want to
kennedy was a friend of mine. senator you're no jack kennedy. >> i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> people translated statements or gestures into insight into a candidate's character. it's all about character. >> so while some lines are practiced like reagan on age other -rs spontaneous, hillary, you're likable enough. no matter how much these guys prepare, bill when the red light goes on it's live television and that's why we watch. bill: cool look at history, william la jeunesse live in los angeles. thank you. jamie: there is a shocking new report on the impact of the struggling economy you might not have expected and it has to do with babies. ♪ baby love, my baby love, i need you, oh how i need you, but all you do is treat me bad, break my heart and leave me sad. ♪ the experts at imperial can convert your long-term payout into a lump sum of cash today. till you finish your vegetables.

the benefit of president obama and my best evidence for that is 1962, jack kennedy, of course, was president, was not running for reelection, but was getting slaughtered in the polls and was supposed to lose decisively in the election, and the cuban missile crisis came, and kennedy won in 1962 # because when there is a threat to the united states or people are afraid, they quite naturally and rightly rally to their president. if there is an international crisis in october of any sort, whether triggered by iran or triggered by israel or triggered by us, it helps president obama significantly. i do not -- i don't imagine he is ambitious enough to start a war to save his presidency, but the israelis will run on their own schedule, not captive to american politics, and if iran tries to break out, they will not let it happen. iran would be well advised to break out in object of this year if only to hope that the united states is paralyzed by politics. pray that doesn't happen. >> final question from a 15-year-old high school student from san juan hills. >> hi, i'd like to say thank you because i

of nixon's supporters in 1960 were so impressed with this young jack kennedy that they said he didn't sweat. seems pretty cool. seems ok and lot of people had problems with george bush but against john kerry they thought he seems arrogant and frankenstein, i will go to george bush. they can change your established based too and if the other guy does such a great job it could also galvanize his base at the expense of the other guy's base. all stuff we don't know and won't know until election.
